Nice set list, great sound. I agree with one reviewer--it's like being in a small club.

By the way, in honor of the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington, NPR posted a list of songs of the Civil Righrts Movement. "Promised Land" was on it. I'd never thought of this song in that context, but I've always loved the cross-country journey and its take on the American Dream. Seeing this song on that NPR list reminded me of this concert and it occurred to me to poke around on the internet for it. Lo and behold, here it was. "I need a miracle every day."

His voice couldn't be more earnest.
The out-solo starts at 9:20, and you can hear the emotionally compelling possibilities....which he later came to master now and then e.g. 10/28/79 and in ensuing years.
Terrapin is also nice (12:41); at 4:55 Garcia roams and wanders for a nice minute until he makes the turn towards the end being never told. At 12 minutes it gets quiet, but his following classical-style duet with Lesh is not as long and contrapuntal as in 11-23....
